Town Mountain band coming to the Olde Fish House Marina

March 10, 2015
By ED FRANKS ( , Pine Island Eagle

Be prepared for a blues-pickin good time at Olde Fish House Marina Wednesday, March 18, when Town Mountain comes to Matlacha.

In published reports, the award-winning Town Mountain has been described as traditional bluegrass, with a rough-hewn side to it that is not too slick or glossy. It is a band with a groove that is based on the bluesy and swinging sounds explored by the first generation of bluegrass pioneers of the last century.

Town Mountain includes Robert Greer on vocals and guitar, Jesse Langlais on banjo and vocals, Bobby Britt on fiddle, Phil Barker on mandolin and vocals and Nick DiSebastian on bass.

"I feel like we're closer to original bluegrass than a lot of bands out there today," said Langlais. "I listened to a radio show recently that featured Ricky Skaggs and he flat-out said that Bill Monroe influenced rock and roll. He said that folks like Elvis and Carl Perkins and those guys were looking up to Bill Monroe. So, I feel like our band has a lot of that influence as well, of the blues and early rock."

The Olde Fish House Marina is at 4530 Pine Island Road, Matlacha. For additional information, call 239-282-9577
